Who We Are

OUR STORY

From the very start, Valley Community Healthcare has held true to its vision and mission—to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of the whole community by providing high quality, affordable, and accessible primary care to those in need…regardless of their ability to pay. VCH is a recognized community leader and innovative agency seeking to improve how we deliver comprehensive managed care to underserved populations.

Over the decades, we increased our comprehensive medical services to provide whole-person care to every member of the family, making our agency a patient-centered medical home. The expanded services included chronic disease management, prenatal care and women’s health services. Our Child Adolescent Medicine Program (CAMP) manages the ongoing pediatric health needs of children from 0-18years. A team of Pediatricians, Family Medicine providers and Adolescent Medicine Specialists are all uniquely qualified to guide children, adolescents and parents through the physical and emotional changes that occur with maturity. When adolescents transition to adult medical care, our adult medicine providers seamlessly continue with their health management in a space familiar to them.

Because VCH takes a whole person approach to health care, we further expanded our clinical programs to include full-service dentistry and optometry, and integrated behavioral health counseling into case management. We were among the first to provide leadership in the treatment of infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C, and established ourselves as a major resource and service center to a vulnerable population, providing confidential testing, counseling, and treatment referrals.

In recent years, we actively supported the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that provides a health safety net to the under-insured people in our community and offers them access to medical care. When the COVID-19 virus surged through our communities, our leadership redeployed staff in all departments, including administration, to offer telehealth visits, prepare urgent patient and staff communications, coordinate with local hospitals and health agencies, and manage the hundreds of incoming COVID inquiries from patients wishing to schedule appointments at our onsite testing and vaccination clinics.

We are proud of our staff and empowered by the way they rallied to provide our patients with a safe and secure medical home; helping them navigate the shifting health care landscape, even as the pandemic impacted their personal lives. In these uncertain times, we value the dedication and commitment of our staff, the resilience of our patients, the continued support of our donors and partners. VCH reaffirms its commitment to provide accessible, affordable, comprehensive care to our community and patient population. We are in this together!
